Street Dog Hero Hosts its Biggest Spay/Neuter Event Yet, in Chetumal & Bacalar, Mexico


More than 575 dogs and cats won’t be contributing to Mexico’s devastating animal overpopulation crisis, thanks to Street Dog Hero’s hugely successful three-day spay/neuter event hosted by Street Dog Hero in Chetumal and Bacalar, Mexico.

The first two days of the clinic took place in the city of Chetumal, Mexico and the third day was held at a local elementary school in Bacalar, Mexico. This was the first of four clinics Street Dog Hero has organized in Mexico this year. Attendees were provided free spay/neuter surgeries as well as flea and tick prevention for their animals.

In one lifetime, a female street dog can produce more than 150 dogs. Which means that Street Dog Hero’s spay/neuter event in Chetumal and Bacalar, Mexico may have prevented the birth of millions of animals.

On any given day in Mexico, there are roughly 15 to 17 million homeless dogs living on the streets who are struggling to survive. That is why funding pop-up sterilization clinics like Street Dog Hero’s in Chetumal and Bacalar, Mexico is essential to help reduce the suffering of animals for generations. The fewer number of unsterilized dogs and cats living on the streets means fewer animals born in communities that don’t have the resources to care for them.
